The chefs at Catahoula sizzle, stir, and fry classic creole dishes to comfort bellies and tantalize taste buds. At dinner, the restaurant transforms its menu into a mélange of hearty eats from land, sea, and air. Crawfish bisque ($8/bowl) introduces palates to the classic flavors of the South before tongues take on delicate cuts of steak béarnaise with bacon-fried cabbage ($18). Adding depth to tradition, duck jambalaya ($18) adds its signature gamey flavor to a dish ripe with andouille sausage and tasso ham, a Cajun specialty. Brunch offerings such as brioche french toast ($9), shrimp-n-grits ($14), and po boy sandwiches ($10–$12) mix American breakfast staples with Cajun and creole flavors for dishes that arrive wearing their own shiny bead necklaces. As guests dine, three flat-screen TVs cast a warm glow and an endless stream of sports on tables, chairs, and diners who’ve decided to settle in for the evening.
Catahoula Bar & Restaurant
Catahoula Bar & Restaurant brings the down-home comfort foods of New Orleans to Queen Village, presenting them in a cozy, laid-back setting complete with dark wooden trim and glowing flat-screen televisions. One such Cajun classic is the chefs' signature gumbo, packed with smoked chicken and andouille sausage that's simmered in a deep-hued roux and plenty of herbs. "A bowl of this gumbo alone is worth the visit to Catahoula," according to Craig LaBan from The Philadelphia Inquirer, and a spread of po boy sandwiches, fried catfish platters, and jambalaya with crispy duck confit keeps guests coming back.
In between bites, diners can enjoy a beer or cocktail from the bar while watching the game on one of televisions around the restaurant instead of on portable crystal balls.
